Christmas is amazing with a 6 month old. We spent Christmas Eve with Sergio's family and Christmas Day with mine. Since Matteo was asleep from 10pm on Christmas Eve to 7am Christmas morning he missed the Festivities at my in laws and therefore, no pictures were taken!
Here is Christmas morning.
He is diggin' into his first present.
Playing with it.
We never knew how much Matteo would love the wrapping paper. He wanted to play with it and eat it all day!
Uncle Taylor and Aunt Stephanie helped him with another present.
Click on this one to really see Matteo's face!
He loved this ball. It plays music and lights up and even rolls around on it's own!
Stephanie crocheted all of our gifts! Matteo's might need a little extension. :)
Sergio's fits good!
Look at the frog she made!!!
She made me an awesome scarf and I LOVE IT!
Here we are at lunch. This is what I get for saying "Everyone look natural"
(You might need to click on the pic to zoom into the faces)
Notice in the previous pic behind my Dad there is a laptop.
We didn't bring our baby monitor so Stephanie got our laptops out and used gchat to watch Matteo while he slept in the other room. Genius!
All the sudden we look over to see my brother Taylor next to Matteo! hahaha
Here is Matteo with his paper!
We started a new Tradition this year.
The Ultimate Gingerbread House Extravaganza!
"Siblings" vs "Spouses"
Three categories of judgment
Originality, structural soundness and teamwork.
Here's the "Siblings" team
(We got a bonus sibling, Mo, Taylor's best friend and Madison was on our team too)
We did a "Social Commentary" as Taylor worded it, showing only rooftops as a throwback to Ike. Notice, the sign on the roof "Take a Hike Ike" PAH!
Here are the "Spouses" + Gunnar
They won the structural category. The "Siblings" won the "Originality" and somehow the "Teamwork" category. (Not sure how that happened with the team work thing.)
Maybe it's because our parents where the judges, but Sibling won overall.
AND! We all got monogrammed snuggies from my parents!
I don't have pictures yet, to be posted later! You're gonna love it!
Merry Christmas Peeps!
